This pivotal conference was complemented by the release of the insightful 'Customer Experience Live Intelligence Report 2023', a comprehensive source of insights into the evolving landscape of customer-centric strategies.
A noteworthy trend illuminated in the report reveals a growing commitment amongst UK companies to bolster their investments in customer journey mapping. Recognised as a valuable tool, customer journey mapping is being increasingly harnessed to enhance customer satisfaction, boost revenue, reduce operational costs, and refine decision-making processes. Scott Rolph, Global Head of Data Quality and Inventory Transformation of the BT Group reiterated the growing importance of customer journey mapping stating, “We firmly believe that the customer journey sits at the heart of what we do, forming the compass that guides us toward unparalleled customer satisfaction, sustained growth, and operational excellence.”
Statistics highlighted a staggering 68% of companies are ramping up their investment in customer journey mapping. Additionally, 62% of companies are re-evaluating Voice of Customer (VoC), 53% are re-visiting AI strategies, and 40% are actively enhancing their CRM systems.
Along with shedding light on the key solutions organisations in the region would be prioritising in 2024, the report also provided insights into the expected timeline and budget allocation for their deployment. 60% of companies in the region are set to make investments in CX solutions within one year and 62% are likely to see an increase in investment towards Digital Experience technology. Clearly, a growing number of enterprises believe that good CX is the cornerstone of strong corporate performance. According to Matt Roberts, Business Intelligence Director of Formula E, “In today's fast-paced world, prioritising customer experience is a fundamental aspect of success. The value of CX lies in the connections it forges, the emotions it elicits, and the loyalty it cultivates. For Formula E, it isn't just a competitive edge; but the foundation of sustained growth and excellence."
